Signs of the Zodiac in Early Color by John Bevis ÔÇô Leo ÔÇô July 23 ÔÇô August 22

This colorfully illustrated Star Chart for Leo has been completely art-worked from the Leo plate featured on John Beviss Star Charts of the signs of the Zodiac by John Bevis c1747-1749.
These extremely charts were compiled by Bevis, an eighteenth century physician-turned astronomer, whose other claim to fame is as the discoverer of the Crab Nebula,
John Bevis (November 10, 1695 - November 6, 1771) and the Uranographia
Historians of astronomy name four great celestial atlases: Bayer s, Hevelius s, Flamsteed s, and Bode s. To this, they add one great work that could have been: Beviss Uranographia.
John Bevis was an Oxford trained physician and amateur astronomer, Bevis set up a private observatory in North London in 1738, where he made observations, which led to his attempt to create the second British Celestial Atlas. In the mid 18th Century, Bevis produced his Uranographia Britannica, which was the first major celestial atlas published after the posthumous publication of the Atlas of John Flamsteed, Englands first Royal Astronomer.
Careful cross-referencing of the dedications on each work allows the date for the creation of the plates to be constrained to between 1747-1749. By comparing the titles suggested in the work to Royal Society and clergy records, upper and lower bounds of the date of creation can be made

EDITORS COMMENTS
This beautifully illustrated print captures the Signs of the Zodiac in Early Color by John Bevis, specifically focusing on Leo - July 23 to August 22. The vibrant Star Chart for Leo has been meticulously art-worked from the original plate featured in John Beviss' Star Charts of the signs of the Zodiac, created between 1747-1749. John Bevis, an eighteenth-century physician-turned-astronomer, is renowned not only for his celestial charts but also as the discoverer of the Crab Nebula. His Uranographia Britannica was a significant contribution to astronomy and became one of the most important celestial atlases alongside works by Bayer, Hevelius, Flamsteed, and Bode. Bevis's passion for astronomy led him to establish a private observatory in North London in 1738. From there, he made groundbreaking observations that inspired his endeavor to create a comprehensive British Celestial Atlas. The Uranographia Britannica was published during this period and marked a significant milestone in astronomical cartography following Flamsteed's posthumous atlas. The dedication on each work allowed historians to narrow down their creation dates between 1747-1749 through careful cross-referencing with Royal Society and clergy records. This particular print showcases Bevis's artistic talent combined with scientific precision, offering viewers a glimpse into both his astronomical expertise and creative flair.
